Sensory Blocks are a great toy for development in all areas!
Articulation/Speech: The sensory blocks are great tokens to give a child as reinforcement within articulation activities. Have the child imitate various words and sounds and earn blocks to make a tall tower or train.
Language: Your child can learn colors and counting with these manipulatives. Have your child request desired blocks using 2-3 word sentences, as well as follow directions for positional concepts (put it on top, under, beside). Play a fun game and have the child follow multiple-step direction (put the red one by the door and the blue one in the chair).
Pragmatics: Turn-taking skills and joint attention.
Fine Motor/Visual Motor: Stacking blocks is an important visual motor milestone, but smooth blocks can be frustrating for young children or for those with poor motor control. These blocks attach to each other to increase successful stacking and creative play. Bilateral skills are used to pull blocks apart. Challenge your little learner’s visual motor skills even more by having them copy your pattern or creation! Grasp and release is addressed when they clean up at the end.
Sensory: The texture on these blocks is satisfying for tactile sensory seekers, and the bright colors are fun to match, keeping children visually engaged.
Gross Motor: These can be used during a relay race by sorting by color or match a color with a gross motor task, i.e. blue=skip, green= hop, red= jump, etc.
